My nine year old fourth grader was in a foul mood this morning, turns out this mood carried over into school. I just got off the phone with his school, seems my son was disrespectful in class and "accidentally" knocked over some kid's milk in the lunch room and didn't say sorry, or show any remorse. He then turned to the kid and told him"your dead" when the kid told on him. WTF? I try so hard to raise a respectful and considerate child and he's a bully? I don't know what to do! Please, if you are going to be nasty, don't bother answering. I really need solid advice right now!Answer Question

maybe he needs some counseling to redirect his anger. some kids get frustrated with things & take it out on others & dontknow good ways to direct it. i wouldnt fore-go punishment within reason because he does need to understand there are consequences for bad behaviors. but yeah talk to him about how he was feeling before he did what he did and discus ways he could express himself without hurting or annoying others.
